VAIL — This past Sunday’s Head Rebel Youth Ski League Kombi event hosted by Ski & Snowboard Club Vail provided tons of fun for alpine racers ranging in age from 8 to 15. Competitors raced down Vail Mountain’s Black Forest, which included a series of small jumps and undulating terrain with multiple stubby slalom and giant slalom gates. The course aimed to promote transitions from short to longer turns to test the young athletes’ balance and tactics on the slopes.

The day’s events also included a Skills Quest Test, a United States Ski and Snowboard Association requirement to test the athletes’ skiing skills outside of the gates. The testing consisted of a straight run into a side-slip, edge set and pole plant.

“Excitement has been building among our athletes throughout the season for this home kombi,” Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s head youth ski league coach Rika Moore said. “They were well prepared and ready to meet their competition, having worked hard at their freeskiing skills in moguls for short turns as well as in gates.”
